Unruly ecologies: Biodiversity and art

by

The SymbioticA programme at the University of Western Australia are holding a seminar on biodiversity and art which includes a call for examples as follows.

Call for contemporary artworks for a survey of examples: Artist whose work explores the idea of biodiversity are invited to post links to their work under the following categories or email an image and paragraph of text to: perdy@perditaphillips.com

    1. as a concept or idea (eg taxonomy and classification, issues of scale in ecology, resilience)
    2. as an issue (habitat loss, over-exploitation of resources, alien species, pollution and climate change)
    3. as a way of thinking — diversity (human/nonhuman), complexity and interconnectedness, compositionist strategies (Latour), resilience thinking and contingent decision making.
